NASA's ATM Technology Demonstration-1: Transitioning fuel efficient, high throughput arrival operations from simulation to reality  (2012)
Abstract Header
In this paper, we describe NASA's Air Traffic Management Demonstration-1 (ATD-1). The objective of ATD-1 is to operationally demonstrate the feasibility of fuel-efficient, high throughput arrival operations using ground-based and airborne NASA technologies for precision scheduling and spacing in conjunction with Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B). ATD-1 integrates three research efforts that were conducted in the simulation laboratories at NASA’s Ames and Langley Research Centers in parallel for many years into the Interval Management-Terminal Area Precision Scheduling System (IM-TAPSS). IM-TAPSS will be further fine-tuned, verified and validated in laboratories and transitioned to a field prototype for an operational demonstration at a major US airport targeted for 2015. This paper describes the ATD-1 concept of operations, IM-TAPSS core components, research results to date, and the ATD-1 plans and status.
